The Golden State Warriors boast a collection of talent that no other NBA team can match, but despite this, the team has an unquestioned leader in Steph Curry. He’s spent his entire professional career with Golden State, and as the Warriors have become the league’s model franchise both in terms of success and playing style, Curry has become the face of the organization.
It’s gotten to the point where it would be weird to see Curry ever suit up for another team — think of how odd it was when, say, Paul Pierce played for teams that weren’t Boston. The good news is Curry completely agrees, as he explained to Bill Simmons on a recent edition of The B.S. Report.
Curry was asked whether he wants to be a Warrior for life, and the two-time MVP made it abundantly clear that he he no plans of ever leaving.
“For sure I do,” Curry said. “This is home. This is where I want to be, for obvious reasons.”
Curry went on to say he loves living in the Bay Area, and admitted that the idea of playing for his dad’s old team, the Charlotte Hornets, doesn’t really appeal to him.
“The only reason I go home now [to Charlotte] is if my sister’s getting married or to go play the Hornets for that one game, so I haven’t really been back much,” Curry said. “I haven’t put my mind there.”
Anything can happen — a contract dispute, a trade, an injury that leads to a parting of ways, anything — but it would be legitimately stunning for Curry to ever play elsewhere. This is partly because the Warriors seem to understand his importance to the team, and partly because he doesn’t sound like he ever wants to go anywhere.
